LNG exports from the three liquefaction plants located on Curtis Island offshore Gladstone totaled 1.77 million tons in September, remaining nearly flat month-on-month. 

The volume was some 50,000 tons above the August figures, pushing to an eight-month high.

Compared to the 1.68 million tons exported from the three facilities in September last year, this is an increase of 5.3 percent, according to the data from the Gladstone Ports Corporation.

China continues to be the top destination for east-Australian LNG with 1 mt of LNG landing in the country. However, this was a 7.6 percent decrease from the volumes exported to China in September 2017 and a 17.3 percent from the previous month.

The remaining volumes from the three Curtis Island facilities landed in South Korea, Singapore, Japan and Malaysia.

LNG exports from the three terminals totaled 15.13 million tonnes in the January-September period.

The LNG export plants located on Curtis Island include Shell’s Queensland Curtis LNG, Santos Gladstone LNG and the ConocoPhillips-operated Australia Pacific LNG terminal.
